the renewed effort comes a week after that mass shooting in oregon. democrats want to expand background checks and requirements to cover sales at gun shows and online. republicans blocked similar legislation in 2013 after the newtown, connecticut school shooting and with republicans controlling both houses of congress, the democratic effort is not expected to be successful this time around either. investigators say the gunman who kimed nine people at umpquoa community college shot and killed himself in front of a classroom full of students after two police officers wounded him. they so say when officers arrived at the college, they saw christopher harper mercer standing in a doorway. he shot at officers who returned fire. >> one round, struck the shooter in the right side. once the shooter was wounded, he entered the classroom again. he went to the front of the classroom and he shot and killed himself. >>reporter: investigators say harper mercer was enrolled in a writing class at the

project. construction stopped a couple of weeks ago when the county fired turner construction because of very lengthy delays. now, wisconsin-based bolt construction will review all of the work out there and give an estimated cost to complete the job. santa clara county has filed a lawsuit against turner construction. turner construction blames the county for those delays. san francisco pleads -- prides itself on individual neighborhoods and the small businesses that give them character. the city has seen a number of businesses close because of skyrocketing rent. some like sam's grim have been able to come back. not all have been able to rebound. last night, sam's posted a fund-raiser for a measure on next month's ballot that would help some historic businesses stay hope in their traditional neighborhoods. if voters approve proposition j, supervisors would nominate up to 300 bids that would be eligible for city grants. no not everyone thinks that's the best use of city money. >> i it is still no reason for the taxpayers to pay a moneymaking
business to keep them in there. >> i think it will help create an incentive to -- incentive to bring in new business to help maintain wonderful historic legacy businesses. >> the landlords of those businesses would also be eligible for grant morn know. san francisco can pay as much as $94 million during the first 25 years. alden smith pled not guilty to dui and hit and run charges at the santa clara courtroom. smith was arrested back in august after he backed his car into out car and then he left the scene. police say he came back on foot, and he underwent a p field sobriety test, and he registered above the legal limit. now, smith also is facing a vandalism charge. he's accused of opening his car door and damaging another car. during the 2014 season, smith received

water, or shelter. they suggest you keep food and water for your bettings inside. don't leave them outside. keep garbage can lids tightly closed and pick up any fruit that has dropped from your trees. they say scattered birdseed can also attract rodents which then draws in the coyotes, and they add if a coyote acts aggressively, you should make a lot of noise. keep an eye on your children and small pets. >> yes. >> especially. don't leave them outside when you are in an area where there are coyotes. >> good advice. time is 5:42. still ahead, a lawsuit, a lawsuit against two top tech executives. the claims the couple's former housekeeper and nanny are making about alleged harassment and unpaid work. plus those wildly popular bay bridge lights. they're about to be turned back on. we'll tell you what it took to power up this art project once again. the traffic does look okay heading
